Could Lip Fillers Help Me?

Full lips have always been in fashion, but not everyone's genetics get the message. Lip liners and glosses can only do so much, and you might not feel comfortable with the idea of surgery. But if you're interested in a natural, immediate and minimally invasive way to plump up your lips, lip fillers are offered at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Care in Warrenton, VA. Learn how Dr. J.C. Caballero uses lip fillers to enhance his patients' smiles and self-confidence!

What do I need to know about lip fillers?

The lip fillers we use at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center are made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and provides cushioning, lubrication and regeneration of cells. When injected under the skin around the lips using a hypodermic needle, it smooths out lines and enhances the natural curvature of the mouth. The longevity of the results varies from patient to patient; it's all dependent on which filler you choose and how long it takes for your body to metabolize the ingredients. On average, you can expect your lip fillers from your Warrenton dermatologist to last between six and twelve months before needing a "refill."

Who should/shouldn't get lip fillers?

Patients who want to customize the way their lips look are excellent candidates for lip fillers. That's because each product offers slightly different results, and can be administered to both the upper and lower lips or just one area. Although your results should be obvious immediately, it will be a few days before the initial swelling disappears. Therefore, if you are planning to have this procedure before a wedding or a photo session, you may want to plan it a few weeks in advance. If you want permanent changes to the shape or size of your lips, you may want to look into other options, since lip fillers are naturally absorbed by the body within a few months.

A consultation with your dermatologist about your goals with lip fillers will help determine a realistic result that fits your budget. Contact Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Center in Warrenton, VA to schedule your appointment with one of our medical professionals today!
